Vets in the north-west of England have been given an exclusive talk by one of America’s leading specialists in animal neurology.
Theresa Pancotto, assistant professor in neurology and neurosurgery at the college of veterinary medicine in Blacksburg, Virginia, shared her knowledge during an event at Northwest Surgeons in Cheshire.
Presentations and tour
Vets who attended were also given a tour of the hospital’s facilities and presentations from prof Pancotto and Northwest Surgeons’ neurologist Lorenzo Golini.
Prof Pancotto said: “Visiting Northwest Surgeons was a brilliant experience for me. It was a fantastic opportunity for vets to come together and learn from one another.
“Northwest Surgeons’ facilities are very impressive and it was wonderful to see so many vets attending the event, getting involved and asking questions.
“I am passionate about my veterinary field, so thoroughly enjoyed being able to share my knowledge with vets who have similar interests in neurology.
“I hope everyone enjoyed listening to my experiences as much as I loved sharing them, and hope they were all able to take something away from my presentation.”
Specialist vet at Northwest Surgeons, Matt Gurney, added: “Theresa gave an excellent presentation. She is such an esteemed veterinary specialist with a wealth of knowledge across the fields of neurology and neurosurgery; we were lucky to welcome her into our referral hospital.
“It was lovely to see so many vets making the most of this great opportunity and we hope everyone who came learned something new.”
